AUSTIN, TX—May 9, 2012—Dovetail Software, a worldwide leader in web-based HR case management and help desk software, will host a panel of human resources and employee relations (ER) experts to share the latest insights on how the practice of preventive employee relations helps organizations create a happier workforce and a healthier workplace. The webinar will be held on May 22 at 1:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time.

“Like preventive wellness programs, preventive employee relations is all about curbing and even eliminating problems before they reach critical stages,” said Dwane Lay, head of Dovetail’s HR Process Design. “Preventive employee relations help organizations uncover trends, patterns and inconsistencies in their employee relations so they can then take action and plan for the future more effectively. We encourage employers to think of it as adopting an ER wellness solution. Our upcoming webinar unites an esteemed group of panelists who will share their experiences and insights on this topic, which should go a long way toward helping attendees address their own employee relations challenges.”

Participants will have an opportunity to interact directly with the panelists during a question-and-answer session. In addition to addressing the practice of preventive employee relations, panelists also will discuss:

• What it means to have a healthy work environment—and its implications.
• Why HR, ER and an organization’s executive team should care about creating and maintaining a healthy work environment.
• How to conduct an organizational “ER health check.”
• What processes and systems must be in place to effectively analyze and improve the workplace.

The webinar panelists will include Paul Smith, HR Director at Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission; Amy Dillman, Resource and Policy Analyst, Human Resources, at the University of Illinois’ Office of Planning & Budgeting; Steve Browne, Executive Director of HR at LaRosa’s Inc. Dwane Lay, head of Dovetail’s HR Process Design, will moderate the discussion.
